The suppliers in this market are giving importance to cater to the specific requirements of end users while adhering to high-quality standards of production. Manufacturers of carbonate minerals are also focussed on the advancement of mining technology for developing high grade and quality carbonate minerals for paper and pulp based industries. For instance, IMERYS Carbonates Llc has been focussing on advancements in calcite production to increase the shelf-life of papers. In a new report titled “Carbonate Minerals Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2017-2027” our analysts have targeted seven key geographies across the world and have observed that the market in MEA is in the emerging stage, primarily due to increase in the development of Saudi Arabia's mining sector. In terms of value, APEJ is estimated to account for a relatively large share in the global carbonate minerals market.

Parent Market Overview: The global demand for carbonate minerals is likely to gain traction during the forecast period 2017-2027

Demand for carbonate minerals particularly in Japan is anticipated to increase significantly in the near future owing to the increase in innovative and advanced technology in mining. APEJ ranks first in consumption of carbonate minerals across the globe. The high requirement for carbonate minerals in APEJ is primarily due to increase in construction activities and growth of the automobile industry in the region. It has been observed that increase in global carbonate minerals consumption is largely due to an increase in consumption of carbonate minerals by end-use industries like paper and pulp and building and construction. We have further observed that the overall minerals industry has been impacted by high demand in regions like MEA and North America and this demand is expected to increase by 2027.
